Regina Schrambling over at Gastropoda:
Probably the most idiotic letter I have ever read in a newspaper came from the soft-headed woman whimpering about foie gras who said she would not want a feeding chute jammed down her throat, therefore ducks should be spared. By that logic, the fact that ducks would not want shoes rammed onto their webs means humans have to give up footwear. Aren’t there online forums where this kind of nincompoopery can go hide?
She has no permalinks so I've quoted the whole thing here. Of all the anti foie gras arguments, I too find the anthropomorphological one the least compelling.
